Slightly sweeter than the canned variety you might be used to, green garbanzo beans have a fresh flavor similar to peas. Garbanzo Beans are an excellent source of several cardio-protective nutrients including fiber, folate and magnesium. They also are an excellent natural source of zinc and copper, two minerals that are essential for the development and function of immune cells. Legumes like green garbanzo beans are loaded with fiber and protein, both of which help increase satiety. In addition the protein and fiber in these beans can also help decrease insulin levels.
